Trust Karan Johar to take a social issue and turn it into a wishful fairytale. What started out as a film portraying the unfavorable bias faced by the Muslim’s post 9/11, in actuality turns into one man’s super heroic effort to save the world.
Welcome Rizwan Khan (almighty Shah Rukh Khan) who …
prevails from a middle class family in Mumbai AND moves to America
suffers from the Asperger’s syndrome AND is very intelligent
is on his way to meet the President of the United States AND also stops by to save a drowning city
gets broke on his trip AND donates money to charities in South Africa
proclaims “My Name is Khan, and I am not a terrorist” AND doesn’t forget to report terrorist organizations to the FBI
survives a fatal stabbing AND unites with his lover (Kajol) AND ‘Lives Happily Ever After’!
Now, had Rizwan turned into God, the film could have had a realistic turn. That didn’t happen.
Seemed like Karan Johar used the issue only to rake in the moolah and felt no real sympathy or empathy with the people at stake here.
If at all we are to learn anything it would have to be from the other KHAN (Aamir).
